Relevant Information:

C057 is similar in colour pattern to C. delphax but is higher and stockier in the body, and it also has a narrower caudal peduncle.. Aquarium care: This is akin to most of this genus, very peaceful, and would be best housed with small to medium tank mates such as Tetras, Rasboras and Danios or in a species tank for breeding purposes. Diet: A good quality flake food and tablet food for adults with sporadic feedings of frozen or live food will keep your Corydoras in good health.
